    Here, at last, is a book that FINALLY answers the many common health questions that even physicians who are trained to fight disease and illness are ill prepared to answer. Most of us as lay persons and conusmers feel at times uncertain about or even fearful of knowing the truth about some common health and wellness questions. The author, a leading pharmacist, shares useful truths. Makes a great gift to almost anyone. Should be a first reference guide to health and happiness in every household.

    This is a great book for people who can’t decide what to take for a stuffy nose, cough, constipation, headaches, etc. This book offers good recommendations for over the counter medications as well as alternative remedies for everyday ailments. I highly recommend this to anyone!

    This book provides a wealth of information on maintaining
    general health. For instance, the author describes classic
    allergic reactions to drugs, food and various environmental
    factors. She explains how to control bad breath through
    brushing, flossing, tongue scrapers and spearmint flavor.
    The book continues by explaining the use of fiber to minimize
    constipation. Dandruff may be controlled with fish oils and
    flax oil. Excess gas may be managed with peppermint tea and lactaid. The authors explain how to control urinary tract
    infections with Azocran tablets. Overall, the book provides
    a wealth of information pertaining to maximizing personal
    hygiene. It is a good purchase as a supplement to your personal
    health and hygiene repertoire of books.

    I started out looking up topics in this handy book by Lisa Chavis, and found myself reading page after page. Not only are there ideas and recommendations for the most common (and most aggravating) everyday health problems in here, but there is a refreshingly cheerful look at pharmacists, doctors and consumers as well. The authors never talks down to the reader and seems to anticipate the questions that come up in the reading. The Humor Pills are delightful additions to rather than distractions from the content. I learned some things and had a good time doing it!
